To our surprise, Lenovo announced a completely new budget tablet today, going by the name of Yoga A12 and rocking a very familiar design. Yes, that’s right, it looks a lot like last year’s ultra-thin Windows 10/Android tablet, the Yoga Book.
Entry-level specs, but they’re not that bad!
However, unlike its bigger brother, this new model is focusing on clients on a budget, rocking a price tag of just $299. But still, don’t get fooled by the price, since you get a more than decent configuration for this amount of money!
To be more specific, we’re talking about a 12.2 HD display, as well as an Intel Atom x5 processor under the hood, alongside 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. As for the operating system, it’s something that you don’t see each day, since it’s a version of Android with a three-column multi-window mode, for multitasking, just like the one used by the Yoga Book, according to The Verge.
Of course, the specs aren’t the main selling point of the Lenovo Yoga A12, since a few hardware aspects are guaranteed to attract a lot of potential customers!
That keyboard doe
The tablet comes with the touch-based Halo keyboard, with haptic feedback, and it will learn your typing habits in time, similar to how Swift Key or other keyboard app does. Besides this, the Yoga A12 has a 360-degree hinge, so you can convert it either into a laptop or a regular tablet.
Currently, you can’t buy it yet, but it will be available on Lenovo’s website, starting with February 8, in Gunmetal Grey or Rose Gold, for a starting price of $299, for the 32 GB version.
